Yeah. Last week we partied. It wasn't so raucous that it's taken a week to recover and upload the photos, but it's been a bit of a whirlwind since the party and we haven't had much chance to breathe or, more importantly, blog.
So how does a fashion community celebrate reaching 20,000 outfit uploads?
With burritos! And cider! And cognac! And chocolate!
We've tried to carve ourselves out as the relatively 'normal' people in the world of fash-un, we know our palazzo from our capri but we also like carbs and booze. And we smile and stuff.
More than 100 shexsy WIWT-ers descended on London's best burrito joint last Monday - Chilango on Chancery Lane.
Chilango looked after us very well indeed - they proved what I already knew, that all you need to be happy is a DJ, guacamole, hot sauce and well dressed people.
An alarming number of attendees had NEVER had a burrito before, so it was quite the honour to indoctrinate them in the way of Chilango.
We had free flowing booze in the form of the ever so delicious pear and apple cider from Rekorderlig (you are all converted) and we had a truly scrummy punch that was more punchy than fruity thanks to our naughty friends at Courvoisier.
Suitably oiled and fed it's safe to say the night was a hoot. It was very weird (nice weird!) to see so many WIWTers in one room, it was literally like the website IN A REAL LIFE ROOM. Everyone was as gorgeous, lovely and immaculately turned out as you'd expect.
I was very proud indeed to see so many people there.
I also got lots of lovely cards and presents, so clearly I should hold events on my birthday more often. (Thank you for them!)
50 of our top users were lucky enough to get their manicured paws on our very limited edition goody bags which had treats from Cadbury (Bubbly is THE BEST), Boux Avenue, LOVE, Burt's Bees, Kleenex Cleanse, Compeed, iwhoretees and Chilango.

Thank you for playing!
More WIWT events soon...one is very soon actually. Watch this space!
